For the eighth year in a row, officials from Japan’s Nagoya Airport are here at NBAA (Booth No. 3094) to highlight business aviation in the region.

Second only to the greater Tokyo area in terms of bizav volume in the country, Nagoya is home to 50 percent of the nation’s aerospace industry and has been designated as an international strategic zone, with manufacturers such as Mitsubishi Regional Jets located at Nagoya Airport. Centrally located between Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo, the airport, which is owned and operated by the local prefectural government, is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and features a business aviation terminal with separate discrete customs, immigration and quarantine facilities for private jet passengers.

The terminal offers nine business jet stands, which jets can taxi to under their own power, and passengers can deplane less than 300 feet from the terminal exit doors. According to the Nagoya officials, the facility usage charges at the airport are up to one-tenth of those at Tokyo’s Narita Airport, which is approximately an hour and a half away by bullet train. The landing permit window has recently shrunk to three days, but according to the authorities, requests can usually be processed in 24 hours.
